Odd effect re. Progressives

Discussion in 'Optometry Archives' started by Greg Beaulieu, Aug 2, 2003.

  1. I made an inadvertent discovery today while trying different things to
    make my progressive lenses work acceptably. On my last visit to the
    optician she adjusted the angle of the lenses (I believe called panto) so
    that they were set more at an angle to the vertical. She did this by
    putting an arch in the arms of the frames and I am not too happy about the
    look that gave them. In any event it seemed not to have much effect.

    Today I was playing around with positions of the glasses and discovered
    quite by accident that doing the reverse - making the lenses sit
    vertically by letting the temples of the frames slide down over my
    earlobes - my distant peripheral vision improved dramatically. The
    fuzziness I saw off-center almost completely disappeared. The only effect
    it had otherwise was that the bottoms of the lenses now sit well away from
    my cheeks so it is possible to look under the lenses. Strange.
